Skip to comments.OLD TIMERS (Part One)
Posted on 06/03/2013 6:37:03 AM PDT by Lazamataz
I was going through some old files on my hard drive, when I discovered a series of threads I preserved from the 1999-2000 timeframe. I started reading through them and I was amazed at the number of people who had been on here, who I lost track of, or no longer see on the forum. I know, some of them are dead, some of them banned, some of them moved on... some of them even changed name! But I would love if any or all of you checked in, informing me of your status. I'm especially interested in hearing from the dead ones, I am very curious about the afterlife.
No, but seriously, I will fill out this chart best I can and the rest of you chime in if you want. I am eager to hear from many of you that have lost touch in the last decade or so....
Here is a complete list and the current status of these old-time Free Republic members, to my knowledge.

Still alive here
I found FR from Drudge...
Yep, I did too in the fall of 1997.
The 15th anniversary is crystal. Hope some sugar daddy sends me some Swarovski crystal jewelry....but I'll settle for a crystal ball to see when Obama is run out of DC town covered in tar and feathers.
Im not on the list and Im not dead. Guess Im in FReeper limbo.
No, you just didn’t happen to chime in on the 10 threads I’ve gone through... glad you’re alive though... lol
Thanks, and I’m glad that you’re alive, too!
I found out about FR at an Election 2000 rally: “No more Gore!”
A walk down memory lane. Followed JimRob’s whitewater posting at prodigy then lurked here for well over a year before finally registering. USA vs Clinton countdown threads and the after hours chat room... sigh
Hey Deb...good to “see” ya..what beach are you on now?
You forgot to include “Deep in the Heurtgen Forest”...and “Classy Green-eyed Blond”
You forgot to include “Deep in the Heurtgen Forest”...and “Classy Green-eyed Blond”
p.s. either your Mac is broken or ...
I'm still here, still enjoying FR (you can try the rest, but FR will always be the best!), donating monthly, and enjoying the ambiance (and the right-wing wackos).
Maybe one of these years I'll find something to post, that hasn't already been posted by someone else (and someone else, and someone else, and ....).
I'm building a new computer, so if I disappear suddenly, it was because I failed to transfer/copy all my data correctly, and/or lost all my passwords (or the black helicopters finally came for me).
May FR reign forever on the innerwebs!! (Hmmm, what's that whoppa-whoppa-whoppa sound? Seems to be getting closer.)
All is well, thank you. I’ve been engaging the Washington Post’s demonic legion of leftwing commentors in frequent hand-to-hand combat lately - figured it’s time to directly engage the enemy. Time is scarce, I’m afraid, but I still regularly read FR. David (a.k.a. “Basil Duke”)
Yeah, we’re still kicking - just not as hard ................................................................................ FRegards
This was a nice idea. I’m still going strong and just as interested but gave up my FR addiction. I still check it a couple times a week, but rarely join any conversations. My husband and I are retired and having a lot of fun and doing some volunteer work. I lost my mother last October and decided to spend some volunteer time at the nursing home where she lived. The staff and residents became like family and I sincerely enjoy my time there. There is so much to listen to and learn from their generation.
Main thing that has changed is that my Reagan-inspired faith in the GOP has been systematically destroyed by the events we have all witnessed. Now I cannot see them as anything but lying collaborators.
I’m not dead but this will be my first post on FR since last summer due to religious bigotry running rampant on this site at the time.
But not me you won’t!
When are you movin to Texas?
I’m still alive and well but don’t hang out here anymore. Too many ghosts here for me!
It’s a sad day for FR when bigots can run an old-timer like you off.
I’m glad to see you’re back. How are things?
Still here and still crazy after all these years.
I’m personally fine but things in general are real bad and getting worse.
I’m sure I don’t need to tell you that though.
As far as being back here I really doubt that.
We know you really work for the NSA.
Just kidding. :P
Always great to hear from you old friend!! I’m actively looking for employment in TX now, so it could be sometime in the next 12 months.
Barring that, I’ve told the better half that once youngest son is done with high school in three years, I’m burning the house down, collecting the insurance and leaving for Texas with or without her. I just can’t stand it up here anymore.
Yeah, things are pretty grim these days, no doubt. These truly are times that try mens’ souls.
My email is TOTALLY broken. I’ve fallen outta the cloud or something. It’s been down for months and I can’t figure it out!!!
Thanks for asking, I’m still here.
Still here, and honored to be on your list. Don’t post as much as in the old days. Over the years, it has been interesting to watch the PC thought process steep into FR. Spooky how people are influenced and do not even recognize it.
I did take my son to D.C. for the March for Justice, and at 12 years old, he had the privilege of pushing a disabled veteran from the MD contingent in the parade. Exciting times. My memory is a little fuzzy, but I think Deb was there and ran the show. My sister was VERY impressed, and believe me that’s saying something.
I do miss A+bert and quidnam(?), though. Good for DISRUPTOR ALERTS.
I wasn’t listed but I am still here.
The good, ol' days, eh? Nice thread Laz. Sorry I'm late, was fishin' in Wyoming. Slayed 'em. Big un's.
Got a question for you. Along about the time frame your thread here is about, you had a website. It played a short section of a piano solo on a loop. What song was it?
Still checking in. It’s not on point as it once was. Too much ridicule and gutter talk.
You might as well come on down! Everyone else up there is!
Let me know when you get here!
Dear God, I just hope they're not bringing their liberal-democrat voting ways with 'em ....
Hi Laz...I wasn’t on the list either, but I’m still here. Lurked for several years. FR was recommended to me by sweetliberty. Since I was logged in (a rare occasion), I thought I’d check this thread to see if she is still around. Nully, I thought you might know...? She was the best.
While I’m at it, a quick story: I was watching the local news a few weeks ago and they showed a pic of some idiotic women who’d done some idiotic thing and the 1st thought that went thru my mind was “Darwin award winner.” The 2nd thought was “Laz wouldn’t even go near her.” I. Was. Mortified! LOL
I occasionally will trade emails with her, she seems to be doing OK.
She was the best.
Still is, but I haven't seen her on FR in a while.
Thanks nully! If you hear from her again, please give her my best. (She might also remember me as Mich from back in the days before FR.) I hope you and yours are well and happy, too.
I love you!
They haven't yet
Do you have some pull with the moderators.....Laz I'm paranoid nowadays.....of course, I was paranoid 14 years ago too :)
I miss Registered’s great graphics. Also miss kattracks threads.
As luck would have it, I'm looking at a few positions in Dallas. Primarily Chief Enterprise Systems Architect and a few CTO positions at two smaller companies. While completely premature, what are the good areas around Dallas for housing? I'm looking for a property that has at least a few acres (3-5.)
Don’t, there’s no danger in what you posted, sweetum.
Hell yeah, they’ve not stuck me in a FEMA camp YET!
WOW, Me too!! That's going back a damned ways!
Shadowgov.com - Bob Enyart also
Life is still beautiful.....we press on.
I’m still around and check in periodically. I don’t post much though. I’ve had a lot to deal with the past couple of years. Can’t afford to upset myself unnecessarily and there’s not much going on in the news and politics that isn’t upsetting. Life’s too short to be angry all the time.
I hope everyone is well. I think of a lot of the old crowd often. I stay in touch with a few....PeaceBeWithYou, nully, Diesel Driver and a few are FB friends.
Thanks for thinking of me. :-)
